The most wanted version of Adobe Photoshop for iOS has just landed on the App Store. All new Photoshop Touch for iPad 2 is generally a fully touch-optimized experience of the desktop, major part, featuring support for core Photoshop features such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, filters, gestures and lost more lets you create professional looking images right from your desired tablet.
Earlier, Adobe has launched its Touch suite for Android few months ago, but the actual big thing was to introduce Photoshop Touch for the iPad.
Photoshop Touch also supported in importing images to your project from multiple sources such as Facebook, Google Images, or directly from your iPad 2’s camera – all from within the Photoshop Touch app.
The app is available now in the New Zealand iTunes App Store and should be making its way across the globe soon. According to the iTunes description, Photoshop Touch features the standard PS features like layers, selection tools, filters, and adjustments, as well as step-by-step tutorials and uploading to Adobe Creative Cloud.
For Facebook users, the integration for sharing images directly through the app and also have a built-in Google images search tool is now available. In addition this, Photoshop Touch allows you to share your work with your friends and family on popular social networking sites such as Facebook. You can also view Facebook comments that your friends have left on your images right from within the app itself.
Features of Photoshop Touch for iPad includes:
* Touch-optimized interface with support for gestures.
* Core Photoshop features such as layers, selection tools, adjustments, filters and more.
* Ability to import images from Facebook, Google Images, or device’s camera.
* Sharing on social networks such as Facebook.
* Support for AirPrint wireless printing.
* Sync project files between Photoshop CS5 for Windows/Mac and Photoshop Touch for iPad using Adobe Creative Cloud.
Unfortunately, similar to Android version, there’s a maximum image size of 1600 x 1600; which is another downside for the original iPad users will not be able to use this software. Due to technical requirements, Adobe has left out support for the first-gen iPad users. Photoshop Touch is available for iPad 2 only, and that too running the latest iOS 5.
Actually, we found Adobe’s Photoshop Touch to be for Android devices since November last year (Android Market link) for the price it will likely be one of the most popular image-editing apps available for the iPad. It’s priced at NZ$13.99, but we’d expect it to have the same $9.99 price point as the Android version when it hits the US app store.
As we mentioned above that this Touch iPad 2 app is currently available on the New Zealand App Store, Photoshop Touch for iPad will soon be hitting the App Store Globally. Not too long before it is available on in US and European App Stores, according to 9to5Mac.
